About Manga Token

Manga Token is a reward, payment and staking token for the manga industry to facilitate supporting mangaka (漫画家, the Japanese word for a comic artist or cartoonist) directly.

The project will introduce a new form of digital merchandise called Manga NFTs into the industry. These NFTs will be made available to the consumer or collectors through the marketplace and reward platform using Manga Tokens as the mode of payment.

We intend to expand this further by rolling out a collaborative translation and publishing network to accelerate the distribution of the manga artworks internationally. Through this platform, mangaka and community led scanlation groups can work together to launch translated manga artworks efficiently and get rewarded in Manga Tokens as consumers read them.

Our goal is to:

  1. Eliminate legal implications of community translated & distributed
  2. Accelerate the release of manga internationally
  3. Provide consumers with content at almost free of charge

We hope that you will join us on this journey to revolutionize the manga industry, which is just the first step of a series of projects that Manga Token will be used for!!
